    Old man sitting at his desk,

    giggling belly, liquor stains and sighs. Fights with a God that grins on the wall. Fights with a frivolous king in his papers. She's gone, gone are her coaxing and charms. Too present the seeds she planted in his mind. Burning ground, adventurous manure, paradoxical water. The...

    Homeward bound. I'm homesick,

    for a place I've never seen. I dream of sunshine and flowers. I dream of the soothing sound of wind breathing through the trees. I dream of laying my head down, and feeling safe. I dream of the calm that comes with feeling at home. I dream of not having to feel like a tourist...

    Now that you know, I can’t stand the thought

    of letting you down But there are so many thoughts swirling in my head I can’t take the sudden bombardment of movement I made—I’m about to fall and drown The battle suddenly got so much harder, leaving me motionless, emotionless, and strewn on my bed The scene just plays...

    Continuing the theme of older poems,

    here's one of my favourites, and one of my few non-rhyming (or at least less-rhyming) poems _ _ _____ _ _ "Eulogy For A Thief" Judge me not for I now stand before God. I am a thief -- I took property; cheated games; coveted words and ideas; stole glances, moments...

    Life experiences are like books on a shelf

    stored and waiting for when you need help; capturing value from what has passed but you'd better learn to read fast since you don't want to get caught staring at pages and make a mistake for the ages. Improvise and be quick on your feet to best handle the challenges...

    The road narrows towards the horizon.

    Somewhere near there is a destination. But anxious thoughts don't have such an end. The wormlike things defy resolution. Twisting around and coming back again. To overwhelm the psyches of their victims.

    My Heart Was Ripped Away From Me

    I wrote this when I was 17. I wasn't in the best of states. I had been cutting a week. But soon after I wrote this I got over my life and pulled my-self back together. The wind combs my hair, the silk of the breeze so smooth. The sparkles in the night sky, they shine so bright...

    The tides have a system,

    seasons have plans; beasts have patterns, we do what we can. Some people come and are valued like gold; a few of them leave and let trails run cold. We both awoke and faced the day; I got to here while you went your way. Wishes are limited and work does enough; so...

    It's another rainy day in Belgium.

    I have too many irons in the fire .

    Distance makes the heart grow fonder.

    It also allows the mind to wander. Issues seem to magnify, Even without a reason why; And all you have is talk and text Until you are together next. So what matters very much to one, To the other may be closed and done. Patience is needed to bridge the space...

    Make decisions wisely.

    Make decisions honestly. Make decisions you can stand behind. Then stand on principle, stand on merit or stand with the help of friends; stand with supports or stand on one leg but stand any way you can.
